Mass of the Anointing of the Sick

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

Mass of the Anointing of the Sick

During His ministry on earth, Jesus had a particular concern for sick people, he healed them not just with a word of power, but also with a human and compassionate touch.  The Anointing of the Sick, like all sacraments, is one way that the Church continues the ministry of Jesus. Through it, Christ continues to touch, heal, and comfort. The Letter of James attests that this practice has always been part of ministry: “Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the church” (5:14)

While the sacrament is often administered individually, join us March 21 in a communal celebration that reminds us that suffering is part of our human condition and may move us to look on each other with the compassion of Christ, the healer.

The Anointing of the Sick Mass will be held Tuesday, March 21, 2017 in the St. Francis Chapel at 1:15 pm.
